  • LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Marymount enjoys easy access from all points of Manhattan and the boroughs.Our front yard is Fifth Avenue, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park.
  • ELEGANT TURN OF THE CENTURY MANSIONS AND A STATE OF THE ART STEM CENTER. Our “home” lends a warm, welcoming atmosphere to a rigorous curriculum. We look different. We feel different. We ARE different.
  • AN EDUCATION OF THE HEART AND MIND. Community service, ethical decision-making and the arts are just as important as academic excellence.
  • AN INDEPENDENT SCHOOL IN THE CATHOLIC TRADITION.We focus on building an inclusive, respectful community. Our students do not have to be Catholic; they just need to be open-minded and appreciate the spiritual part of life.

  • THE POWER OF A SINGLE SEX EDUCATION. Research shows that students in a girls’ school find their voice, gain greater confidence, become astute leaders and are academically more successful, especially in math, science, and technology.
